TURKEY TELLS EUROPE TO GET STUFFED…

By David Vance On November 25th, 2016 at 6:54 pm

This was inevitable.

Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to throw open his country’s gates for migrants and refugees after the European Parliament voted to suspend EU membership negotiations with Ankara.

“If you go any further, these border gates will be opened. Neither me nor my people will be affected by these empty threats,” Mr Erdogan said at a women’s justice congress in Istanbul on Friday, raising the rhetorical stakes with the EU.

“It wouldn’t matter if all of you approved the vote,” he added, defiantly, referring to the European Parliament’s motion a day earlier.

In other words, let Turkey into the EU or Turkey will let millions of muslim migrants into Germany. Either way, the EU loses.

A come to Jesus moment

Ahh there are many here that believe my views to be slightly to the right and a little off kilter.  I speak of such ridiculous things like The Constitution, Holding Constitutional Convention of the States, Term Limits, Balanced Budgets… etc etc

Why these are the ravings of a mad man, someone who believes Trump got Elected because both sides screwed us and Hillary was just to big of a crook to even win Pennsylvania.

Well it seems that the light of reality might have actually pierced the vale, but I doubt it. I give you probably the biggest loser of this Past Year. The OTHER Heir Apparent.

 

Where Republicans Go From Here

To start, we should back a constitutional convention to pass term limits and a balanced budget clause.

Cold Turkey

By Mahons On November 25th, 2016 at 2:58 pm

New Orleans has the Po-Boy.  Philadelphia the Cheesesteak.  New England has the Lobster Roll.  New York has the Pastrami on Rye.  I grant you your favorite grinder, hoagie, sub, hero or other delight between slices of bread.  Give me the Day After Thanksgiving sandwich.

Entirely made of leftovers this annual treat has been devoured with a rapture unequaled by the Book of Revelations by delighted Americans for generations.  Who knew Cold Turkey could induce such ectasy?

Take dinner bread rolls, slice.  Add turkey, stuffing, a little Cranbury sauce, butter and a dab of brown gravy.  Stuff into your gob.  Repeat.

The gravy is the only part I reheat.  Delicious.  I have added a side cup of New England clam chowder in a Baccunal touch in recent years for the full surf and turf experience.  The sandwich must be eaten while on a couch.  Daily cares are to be placed out of consideration.  Lesser Americans are hopefully trampled to death in Darwinian stampedes at the local Walmart on this Black Friday while I take the slower but just as sure path to see meet Our Maker by a gluttonous indulgence.

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to all.  Those who left the US and moved to Canada based on Trump’s win will face another crushing blow.  The Canucks celebrate Thanksgiving in October, so they missed it.  Fools rush out.  Now back to the fridge…

THE NEW WAVE…..

There is a momentum that won’t be denied.

STATE CONTROL…

By David Vance On November 24th, 2016 at 5:49 pm

No matter how you look upon it, this is a complete invasion of a citizen’s right to privacy.

Organisations including the Food Standards Agency and the Department for Work and Pensions will be able to see UK citizens’ entire internet browsing history in weeks.

The Investigatory Powers Bill, which was all but passed into law this week, forces internet providers to keep a full list of Internet Connection Records (ICRs) for a year, and make them available to the government if it asks.

Those ICRs effectively serve as a full list of every website that people have visited, not collecting which specific pages are visited or what’s done on them but serving as a full list of every site that someone has visited and when. And those same ICRs will be made available to a wide range of government bodies.

I have no problem with those parts of the State tasked with keeping us safe being able to access my Internet history but I sure as heck cannot see why the Minions in The Food Standards Agency, Local Councils. and parts of the Stormont Government should have such privilege. What’s worse is how this measure slips into law without a murmur from much of the so-called “watchdog media”

25 YEARS AGO….

By David Vance On November 24th, 2016 at 5:42 pm

Hard to imagine he passed away 25 years today. I’m talking about the mega-talented but sexually reckless Freddie Mercury. This was his finest moment. From 45 years ago. It still sounds GREAT.

STOP BREXIT….

By David Vance On November 24th, 2016 at 5:16 pm

Despite the fact I rejoice in both BREXIT and the election of Donald Trump, there is one major difference and it took Nigel Farage to point it out;

“There’s one problem we’ve got. In America, the revolution is total.

“Not only have the people spoken and won but the old administration of Obama and all those ghastly people are out and the Trump people are in and they’re now in control.

“The problem in this country is that while the people have spoken, the same players have just been shuffled around the chess board and we’re still being run by the career, professional, political class.”

This was manifest in the doom laden Autumn Statement by Conservative Chancellor Philip Hammond. Hammond was a prominent (if wonderfully uncharismatic) Remainer and his pessimism is reflected by that other august body, the Office of Budget Responsibility and now again today by a doom laden report from the reliably left wing IFS.

They all sell the same repeated deceit – we are going to ALL suffer horribly because we dared to vote against these “experts”

This IS Project Fear and it didn’t die on June 23rd when we said LEAVE. Instead it is working assiduously to undermine our will.

I am increasingly distrustful of Prime Minister May and her intentions re Brexit. It seems that her dithering is allowing the LOSERS in the Remain camp to chip away at what has to be done, to seek to damage our economic prospects by talking the economy down, and to try and anchor us in the EU.

SOME LIVES ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN OTHERS

By Pete Moore On November 23rd, 2016 at 6:44 pm

THOMAS MAIR, a mentally ill Norwegian militant, has been found guilty of murdering a Labour MP called Jo Cox. He has been given a whole-life tariff, meaning that he’ll only leave prison in a box.

I have no problem with the verdict or the sentence. There’s no doubt about his guilt, and I’m generally in favour of life meaning life for premeditated murder. It’s just a shame that most convicted murderers are given just a few years for the same crime. Some have suggested that because Cox was an MP, that her murder was “an attack on democracy”. This is meaningless drivel, and when the pro-IRA John McDonnell said it in the Commons today, laughable too. It’s no comfort to most bereaved that their loved one was not murdered for political reasons.

No, I’m sorry, MPs are not more precious than anyone else.

I notice the predictably disgraceful reporting today too. The BBC has suspended its reporting guidelines and actually described Mair as a “terrorist”. Others have openly linked Mair to Right Wing causes. This is to dangerously fan the flames of Patriotophobia. Up and down the country tonight, patriots will be nervous about attacks on them, by bigots and phobes. Nationalism is the ideology of peace. The government and the UN must come out and say so.

EXPAT/EU DEAL CLOSE

By Pete Moore On November 23rd, 2016 at 6:02 pm

Told you this would happen. Reports The Telegraph

Hundreds of thousands of British expats are set to be granted the right to carry on living on the Continent after Brexit after the majority of European Union countries signalled they were ready to do a “reciprocal rights” deal with the UK […]

The Government said no deals had yet been struck, but the closeness of an informal understanding is leading to speculation that any deal will be announced at a key EU summit in Brussels next month.

Back in the summer, following the Brexit vote and when Remainers were howling with rage (and still are), I said that this would happen. Back in the summer, while some were suggesting that millions of people will be ejected from thie homes, I said that this would happen. In fact I said that (then) PM Cameron, and Parliament, ought to make it clear that no-one will be kicked out. This simply will not happen in 21st-Century Europe.

We can do the same with trade, if everyone involved remembers that they’re adults.
